The latest upgrade, according to the business, is intended to solve a number of problems that appeared in versions 12.13 and 12.14. Garmin retracted both updates because the problems were so severe. Garmin keeps releasing Beta Program builds so that the Instinct 2 series is ready for a new stable update. The business has been gradually enhancing Beta Version 12.09, the first beta build since it made available its most recent stable update, firmware version 11.18, throughout this month. Although Garmin had attained Beta Version 12.14, both it and Beta Version 12.13 had serious flaws.

Additionally, according to Garmin, there have been some occasions when the compass calibration failed and displayed "000," as well as problems with saving or discarding operations. According to the firm, Beta Version 12.15 fixes these problems, but you should only update if you experience these problems with Beta Versions 12.13 or 12.14. To be clear, all Connect IQ content will be deleted after changing to Beta Version 12.15. However, as soon as the update procedure is complete, this can be promptly redownloaded. Furthermore, according to Garmin, the most recent beta release resolves problems with the HIIT custom timed number picker and racket sport data sections.
